I thought this might qualify for the Saturday Shadow theme Smile A yellow weaver bird busy constructing a new nest for the missus and the future family. Unfortunately the sun was overhead so his head is in the shadow.
A great big thanx to all who voted and commented on my Sunbird image yesterday - I really do appreciate your involvement Smile
Have a super Saturday. Our son has to play his first cricket match against a touring team this morning BUT the wind is howling and rain has been predicted.

Wonderful "construction" shot Herman. I wonder.......when we were in Peru, we saw, and even more heard, weaver birds. They have a most remarkable call that I could only begin to describe as sounding "like water running over rocks". Does this one have a call like that?
